Signal Studios and Ubisoft have announced that Toy Soldiers: War Chest will include a quartet of licensed armies when it launches for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this Summer.
Two licensed armies remain under wraps, but Ubisoft and Signal were ready to reveal that G.I. Joe (with Duke leading the charge) and the Masters of the Universe (naturally lead by He-Man) will join the fight in Toy Soldiers: War Chest. This pair of 1980s stalwarts will do battle with the game’s four standard armies, which will all include their own unique offensive and defensive units:
- Kaiser Wilhelm and the German army from World War I.
- Starbright (who looks like a cross between Sailor Moon and Rainbow Brite) and her Star Power army of Bunny Bears, Ponies, and Pixies.
- Ghost Company, a futuristic army lead by the power armor-clad Phantom.
- Black Dragon, a feudal force lead by Darklord.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest will be available in two distinct versions when it launches this Summer. The Hall of Fame Edition, which will be available as both a digital download and a retail disc for $29.99, will include all four licensed armies as well as the four standard armies. Meanwhile, the standard edition of the game will only be available as a digital download (priced at $14.99) and will only include the four standard armies. However, players who purchase the standard edition will be able to add the four licensed armies by purchasing them separately (for $4.99 apiece) or as part of the Legendary Heroes Pack (for $14.99).
Now you know… and knowing is half the battle!
